With the end of Paris Fashion Week (Fall 2014 Couture), we went ahead and rounded up the most important jewelry moments. From Christian Dior to Chanel, we just couldnt’t help but oh-and-ah at the gorgeous designer jewels (we wouldn’t mind seeing them in our jewelry boxes!). You’re more than welcome to do the same with our jewelry round up below.
Dior – Dior’s latest high jewelry collection, ArchiDior, featured 44 new pieces designed by Victoire de Castellane. Castellane commented that she wanted to create each piece with an architect’s eye, just like Christian Dior designed his dresses. A number of Castellane’s jewelry designs took up to 2,500 hours of work – talk about dedication!
Chanel – Chanel’s high-end jewelry collection presented during this year’s Fall 2014 Couture Show was inspired by the Café Society of the 1920’s. Pieces included bracelets, rings, tiaras, and brooches, and Coco Chanel’s favorite flower the camellia made a special appearance in several designs. What a lovely homage to such an iconic brand! Bulgari – Bulgari took a different route during this year’s Fall 2014 Couture runway show. The brand showcased their famous colored jewelry pieces on their models as they sashayed down the runway. Bulgari’s CEO Jean-Christophe Babin commented that diamond jewelry now makes up around 40% of the new collection, as compared to Bulgari’s usual colored stones. Whether diamonds or gemstones, we’re fans of all Bulgari jewelry designs!
